Orchester Johannes Fehring

Band, AT
Jazz and Pop
A.k.a. Das Orchester Lutz Albrecht

One of Austria's most sucessfull backing orchestra's of the fifties and early sixties. Johannes Fehring assembled Vienna's best studio musicians to build a big orchestra that played various styles of easy listening, swing, schlager and soul jazz on records as well live in Vienna's Volksgarten. Fehring and his orchestra were present on lots of records, mostly Schlager, in Germany and Austria. In the mid-sixties Fehring started to build new and funkier combos like Johannes Fehring & The Chicks and around 1971 Austria's TV library orchestra ORF Big Band. The core of the big band were members of this orchestra like Karl Drewo, Hans Salomon, Hans Löw (2) and Felix Hanusik, Robert Demmer. A late member of the orchestra was also US Jazz Trumpeter Art Farmer during his time in Vienna. Other famous members were Austrian Jazz export Joe Zawinul (before he left Austria to USA) and Knef arranger and backing orchestra leader Hans Hammerschmid (before he left Vienna to Berlin). Early members not in the database: Fred Reithofer, Walter Borovsky
